Dear David Inman: Many years ago, I saw a movie with Jeff Chandler and Loretta Young. They were married and had a child, but something happened that made her leave the marriage, so she joined a magician that went to birthday parties to entertain the children. She did that so she could see her child. Can you give me the name of the movie? – R.E., Rochester, NY
Dear R.E.: Awwww.
That’s the 1952 film “Because of You,” although the complete title should be “Because of You I’m a Magician’s Assistant.”
Anyway, the cast also includes Gayle Reed as the child and Harry B. Mendoza as the magician.
